This is Todd with Todd A. Hess Painting Company. I’m here to talk to you about some painting trends in York, PA. We’re seeing three trends: sage-colored siding, black front doors, and solid stain decks.
We’re seeing some people go from gray siding to more of a sage green siding color. So we’re taking a painting from grays to greens. A lot has been said about gray being a dominant color, but I do think we’re seeing a trend away from that.
We’re also seeing more people looking to do front doors in black and their shutters in black. So that’s another trend. A lot of people aren’t using as many colors on their shutters and front doors; they’re just going straight for black.
We also are seeing a move to solid stains from semi-transparent stains on a lot of decking. We believe this trend is probably being pushed forward due to the newer products not lasting as long. So a semi-transparent stain only lasts about two or three years, and a solid stain lasts between five and eight years if prepared correctly.
So that’s three things to consider if you’re looking to do a painting project right now. And if you are, please contact us. Check out our website, www.toddahesspaintingco.com or give us a call at 717-881-5807.
